Hi I'm Tymon

It's pronounced TIE-mun, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an entrepreneurial college student graduating in the next year, hopefully to start my own business. I thoroughly enjoy good food, both in eating and cooking. I love to read, and I speak both English and Spanish. I played piano all through middle school, and trombone up through high school and into college, and although it's been a while since I've played either, music is a big part of my life. I'm a bit of a tech nerd; I love gadgets and computers and figuring out how to make them do exactly what I want. But what's really most important to me--and has defined my life more than anything else--is being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I love everything about the Church. I love the scriptures. I grew up reading the Book of Mormon every night with my family, and as I got older, I wanted to know for myself that it, as well as all other works of scripture, was true. As I prayed and asked God, I felt a warm, joyful feeling within me confirming to my mind that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. As a Mormon, I believe that God has once again called living prophets to lead His people, just as he did in the ancient Christian church. He reveals His word and His will to them, and through His authorized servants, Jesus Christ truly is at the head of this church. He directs His work. Throughout my life I have seen that Jesus Christ and His Atonement, or salvation-enabling sacrifice, is what is most important. I love Him and am grateful for what He did for me, and for all of us. He lives, and because of Him, we will live again--death is not the end. I know that Jesus Christ and His Father--our Heavenly Father--love us and that They have designed a plan for us to be able to return to Their presence and live, as we did before choosing to come to Earth, with Them again.

How I live my faith

In my congregation, I serve by supervising and giving counsel to a group of young men between the ages of twelve and thirteen. I also visit several families in my congregation every month to bring spiritual messages and offer service. I also assist with planning and organizing a weekly scripture study class for young adults like myself.
